Why should we use Unicode font?
There are several reasons for adopting Unicode:
“Text processing requires understanding the text being processed, and so depends on the character encoding. Unicode provides a solid foundation for processing all text worldwide, while non-Unicode encodings require separate implementations for each encoding and support only a limited set of languages each. Using Unicode consistently also makes it easier to share text processing software around the world.
Some applications support communication and collaboration between users who live in different parts of the world and use different languages. Unicode is the standard that enables worldwide communication, without restrictions imposed by the language that the user uses or region that they live in.
Because many languages are not supported by non-Unicode character encodings, users sometimes submit user-generated content (such as form data) in encodings other than the supported ones (e.g., by changing the browser encoding). This prevents the application from processing the text correctly, for example, when searching for it in the database, or when selecting ads to be placed next to it.
Many Website or application bugs are related to character encodings, because different sites or different localizations of the same site use different character encodings, and the encoding of text data is misinterpreted in many places.”
